I'm proud to share the cover for my upcoming young adult novel, 'That Night', published by Evernight Teen (Evernight Publishing). The tentative release date of this ebook is December 2015 so stay tuned!
About the book: It can take a whole day to figure out what happened that night, and 16-year-old Luke Hannon learns just that on what was supposed to be just ‘another freaking Monday.’
In the aftermath of his girlfriend’s suicide attempt, Luke struggles to define loyalty - to her, his friends, and most importantly, to himself. On what was supposed to be just another Monday morning at school, Luke is met with blame and accusing looks from everyone in the halls - even his best friend - but he can’t figure out why. Names like ‘freak’ and ‘psycho lover’ follow him to his locker, and when he can’t find his girlfriend Jessica, he starts to worry. When Luke is told she tried to kill herself at a party he left early from the previous Saturday night, he is torn between feeling guilty for leaving her and an urgency to clear his name – and protect hers.
Gossip, fabricated stories, and online photos of Jessica spread like wildfire and when the school finds out, they have to investigate. Luke’s shop teacher/school counsellor - the same teacher who has to investigate the recent events - is supposed to be sponsoring Luke for college and scholarship applications for an auto technicians program at the local college. With the college applications due by the end of the week, and the teacher in the middle of the investigation also the same one to provide references for Luke – both academic and character – will Luke lose his dreams of becoming a mechanic, all because of what happened...that night?
